Bedtime burglar(s) hit 4 homes in Sanbornton THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

Weirs Drive-In Theater

LACONIA, N.H.

SANBORNTON — Police Chief Steve Hankard said yesterday that four homes in the Lower Bay Road section of town were struck overnight by what appears to be the bedtime burglar or burglars. Hankard said three of the homes are on Lower Bay Road

and the fourth home is on Upper Smith Road. He said all four homes were occupied during the burglaries and at least two of them had dogs. Hankard said all of the burglaries appeared to have taken place between 2 and 5 a.m. Thursday morning and all appeared to have been “crimes of opportunity.”

“Quick in, quick out,” Hankard said adding all four of the burglaries were reported to police yesterday morning and none of the victims or their neighbors reported hearing anything. One of the Lower Bay Road victims, who will not be identified, said she never heard a thing and actually rose during

the night to use the bathroom. She said she had left her door unlocked and her pocketbook near the door, but never knew her home had been entered until her neighbor, also a victim, called at 6 a.m. to tell her the police wanted to speak with her. “She told me not to touch see BURGLARY page 12

Welcome to the Township of Governor’s Island, N.H.? BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

GILFORD — “When did our personal success become an open checkbook for big government?” asked Barbara Aichinger, who is seeking to persuade her neighbors on Governor’s Island to secede from the town and establish a separate municipality. In a manifesto echoing the Founding Fathers, Aichinger opens by explaining that there are 202 taxable properties and 166 residential homes on the island, but just 118 registered voters, which leaves a

KILLEEN, Texas (AP) — An AWOL infantry soldier caught with weapons and a bomb inside a backpack admitted planning what would have been Fort Hood’s second terrorist attack in less than two years, the Army said Thursday. He might have succeeded at carrying it out, police said, if a gun-store clerk hadn’t alerted them to the man’s suspicious activity. “We would probably be here today, giving you a different briefing, had he not been stopped,” Killeen Police Chief Dennis Baldwin said. The 21-year-old suspect, Pfc. Naser Abdo, was arrested Wednesday at a motel about three miles from Fort Hood’s main gate. He had spoken out against the 2009 Fort Hood shootings last year as he made a public plea to be granted conscientious objector status to avoid serving in Iraq or Afghanistan. Like the soldier charged with killing 13 people in the shootings, Abdo is Muslim, but he said in an essay see AWOL page 9

Police go door-to-door in search for missing girl STEWARTSTOWN, N.H. (AP) — The number of law enforcement officers investigating the disappearance of an 11-yearold girl in this northern outpost grew Thursday to more than 100, as they turned a school into a bustling command post and went door to door seeking clues. Celina Cass’ home sat empty, surrounded by police tape and guarded by a state trooper. Her family stayed elsewhere during a third day of community-wide searches as townspeople continued to pass out fliers of the girl, who was last seen when she went to bed Monday night. Investigators from state and federal agencies worked together in the Stewartstown Community School. Jane Young, a top investigator for the New Hampshire attorney general’s office, said investigators were “not leaving any stone unturned.”

“It is our greatest hope that we find her and bring her home safe to this community and her family,” said Young, who described an “all-out search.” Police said there’s no indication that Celina ran away or that someone took her, and there were no signs of a struggle. But the FBI brought in its child abduction rapid deployment team with agents from Virginia, New York and Philadelphia. More than 100 tips poured in, and investigators were acting on them. A police motorcade traveled to the nearby home of Betty and Dustin Day, where Betty Day said investigators questioned her about a recent sleepover Celina had attended. From there, law enforcement officials continued farther down the road and were searching camps in the woods. Outside a three-story apartment house

where the Cass family lived, a state police major crime unit van arrived and technicians wearing booties entered the building. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children was asked to assist in mapping the locations of sex offenders in the area and sent a representative, retired police investigator Charles Masino, to Stewartstown to help investigators, said Ernie Allen, the center’s president. “This one is real scary,” Allen said. “We’re hopeful. There’s a very aggressive effort under way to find her. So we certainly have not given up hope.” Investigators are likely working on several different theories simultaneously and ruling them out one by one, Allen said. Several areas of concern are the girl’s young age, which makes it unlikely that she’d run see MISSING page 14

WASHINGTON (AP) — An intense endgame at hand, House Republicans waged an overtime struggle Thursday night to round up enough of their recalcitrant rank and file to pass emergency legislation to prevent a looming government default. Senate Democrats pledged to scuttle the bill — if it ever got to them — in hopes of forcing a final compromise. As debate seemed headed toward an early evening vote, GOP leaders abruptly ordered an unexplained halt on the measure — which also would cut nearly $1 trillion in federal spending — and Speaker

John Boehner summoned a string of Republicans to his office. Hours later, the situation was unchanged: Plenty of talk. No vote. Asked what he and Boehner had spoken about, Rep. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said, “I think that’s rather obvious. .. There’s negotiations going on.” Based on public statements, it appeared that five of the holdouts were from South Carolina. The state is also represented by Sen. Jim DeMint, who has solid ties to tea party groups and is a strong critic of compromising on the debt issue.

A few first-term conservatives slipped into a small chapel a few paces down the hall from the Capitol Rotunda as they contemplated one of the most consequential votes of their careers. Asked if he was seeking divine inspiration, Rep. Tim Scott, R-S.C., said that had already happened. “I was leaning no and now I am a no.” Many more congregated in the office of the chief GOP vote counter, California Rep. Kevin McCarthy, perhaps drawn to the 19 boxes of pizza that were rolled in. Boehner joined them but did not speak to reporters. see GOP page 11

Polygamist leader decides to be his own lawyer as Texas outlines its case

SAN ANGELO, Texas (AP) — A Texas prosecutor told jurors Thursday he would present an audio recording of Warren Jeffs raping a 12-year-old girl and DNA evidence showing he also impregnated a 15-year-old, providing the first hint of the state’s case against the polygamist sect leader. Opening statements came shortly after the 55-year-old Jeffs fired his high-powered defense team and asked District Judge Barbara Walther to be allowed to represent himself, while also imploring for more time to prepare his defense. She agreed he was competent enough to be his own attorney but refused to delay the proceedings. Jeffs stared into space as special prosecutor Eric Nichols alleged he had assaulted the two girls in 2005 and 2006 at a remote sect compound in West Texas. The ecclesiastical head of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints had entered into “spiritual or celestial marriages” with the girls, Nichols said. Jeffs declined to give an opening statement and remained seated and mute while Nichols presented the prosecution’s case. He didn’t take notes or seem to pay attention as the prosecution called its first five witnesses — all law enforcement officials who described obtaining DNA evidence from Jeffs and the alleged victims. “You’ve sat here now for an hour and not said a word,” Walther said at one point, then added his continued ignoring of the proceedings could have “a very bad result.” His surreal silence was in sharp contrast to how Jeffs began the day, addressing Walther slowly and deliberately for 25 minutes and saying that though he had spent extensive time training his lawyers, they weren’t able to present “a pure defense.” But he also maintained that he could only represent himself if Walther delayed the case.

Jeffs has burned through seven attorneys in six months as an apparent stall tactic, however, and the judge said allowing for further delays would be tantamount to manipulating the court. “Mr. Jeffs, the court is not going to recess these proceedings to let you go to law school,” she said. The defendant often waited one to two full minutes to begin speaking whenever the judge asked him a question, only to pause mid-sentence for extended periods. He said, “I feel this is an injustice being performed” and that allowing the case to go forward meant not letting, “true justice to be served, which is the purpose of the court of law in a nation that professes true justice be served.” His sect is an offshoot of mainstream Mormonism that believes polygamy brings exaltation in Heaven, and followers see Jeffs as God’s spokesman on Earth. He is charged with sexually assaulting two underage girls, and, if convicted, could face life in prison. Jeffs’ sect has more than 10,000 members nationwide, and controls a land trust believed to be worth more than $110 million. The charges against him stem from a massive police raid in April 2008 at Yearning For Zion, a sect compound about 45 miles south of the oil and gas town of San Angelo, where Jeffs’ trial is taking place. More than 400 children were placed in protective custody, and women who live on the compound appeared on TV airwaves across the country wearing their traditional, frontier-style dresses and hairdos from the 19th century. Authorities moved in after receiving an anonymous call to an abuse shelter, alleging that girls on the compound were being forced into polygamist marriages. The call turned out to be a hoax, made by a woman in Colorado, and the children were returned to their families.

First year Got Lunch! program earns high praise from participants & volunteers By AdAm drApcho THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Halfway through its first year, Got Lunch! is receiving rave reviews, both from those involved in running the program, which provides healthy lunch food for city children throughout the summer, and from those whom the program benefits. John Walker, one of the founders of Got Lunch!, was inspired after learning last year that nearly two-thirds of Laconia’s children qualified for free or reduced-price school lunches. What do those children eat during the summer, he wondered, and after bringing his idea to the Better Together group, Got Lunch! was formed with the ambition of providing bags of free lunch food items for any Laconia schoolage child whose parent applied for the program. Every Monday, a small army of volunteers, headquartered at the Congregational Church of Laconia, assembles bags of groceries to be either picked up by the recipients or delivered to their door. Walker said, as of July 24, 285 children had registered for the program, representing 134 families. Groceries for more than 7,000 healthy lunches have been distributed so far. Some of those lunches have gone to the Coulter family, which moved to Laconia from Pennacook a year ago. Kristal Coulter first heard about Got Lunch! when one of her children brought home a flyer from school. She was incredulous. “I was like, really?” she recalled. She filled out the form and returned it to the school nurse. One early summer Monday, there was a knock at her door and a pair of “very nice” volunteers handed her bags with enough groceries for a full week of lunches for her four children: Haley, 15; Danny, 13, Olivia, 3 and one year-old Theodore. The Coulters enjoy the lunches, which include whole-wheat bread and sandwich fixings such as peanut-butter and jelly or canned chicken or tuna with mayonnaise. Olivia likes the fresh fruit that is also included, while Haley and Danny have taken to dipping the carrots in barbecue sauce.

Haley, Danny and Olivia Coulter eat a lunch of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with fresh apples and carrots at their home on Wednesday. The Coulters are one of 134 Laconia families that are receiving free lunch foods through the Got Lunch! program, which is in its first year of operation. (Laconia Daily Sun photo/Adam Drapcho)

Before Got Lunch! started, Kristal said she was “totally stressing out” about her grocery expenses for the summer. “They eat a lot as growing kids and we’re on a tight budget – it helps a lot,” she said. “I really do think this is a good program.” Kim Kelleher also thinks highly of Got Lunch!. Kelleher, a school counselor in Chapel Hill, N.C. whose family summers in Gilford, said she came to know the program when looking for a volunteering opportunity for her and her high school-age son Aaron Hiller. From the perspective of an education professional,

Kelleher said the Got Lunch! initiative has many benefits. Like Laconia, Chapel Hill has a significan percentage of children that qualify for subsidized lunch programs. “I think it’s really helping. It’s helping the children of these families eat healthy, nutritious lunches all summer that they might not be able to have... I think it really helps the children to continue to eat healthy.” In addition to the financial relief and physical health benefits the families enjoy thanks to Got Lunch!, Kelleher said children who have a healthy see next page

Post office closures would make hikes along Appalachian Trail even harder RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Hiking the nearly 2,200mile Appalachian Trail already is grueling, and the U.S. Postal Service may make it even tougher. A plan to close rural post offices could shutter several outposts long used by hikers to receive food and gear as they walk the trail from Georgia to Maine. Closing the post offices in Fontana Dam, N.C.; Glencliff, N.H.; and Caratunk, Maine, would leave hikers without an easy way to get food and switch out equipment at critical points during their treks, which usually take between four and six months. Those key locations and some others near the trail are being reviewed for closure, though no final decision has been made. “I’m trying to do this without spending much money. Getting supplied at the post office is a big part of that. It’s like a lifeline,” said Mike Healy, a 26-year-old Chicago resident who is hiking the trail with friends. In mid-March, he tore into a package mailed to the western North Carolina post office before he headed into the Great Smokey Mountains National Park. “The night before we reached Fontana, four of us

split a small box of dried cereal because that was all the food we had left,” Healy said in a phone interview from Maine. “We were glad to know we’d be able to get our package the following day.” More than 3,600 local offices, branches and stations could be on the chopping block as the financially troubled U.S. Postal Service considers closing 1 in 10 of its retail outlets to save money. Each place will be studied, and people served by the location will be able to make a case for keeping it open. Only five of those post offices are in New Hampshire; none in Belknap County. The closest is the tiny South Tamworth post office on Rte. 25. About 3 million people spend time on the trail every year and some 2,000 set out to “thru-hike” — or complete the trek in one season, according to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. Most travel north from Springer Mountain in Georgia to Mount Katahdin in Maine. The threat of closures along the Appalachian Trail is mirrored in the West for thousands who traverse sections of the 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail, which runs from Mexico to Canada. At least three rural

from preceding page diet perform better academically, have better dental health and are more likely to make healthy choices in other areas of their life. “What they have done here in Laconia, I’m very impressed,” Kelleher said. She and Hiller are among the program’s 72 regular volunteers. Despite its youth and its scale, Kelleher said Got Lunch! is operated with efficiency and organization. “I think this can only do good for the children and the families – I’m so glad that I got in.” Kelleher continued, “We’re also being helped because we’ve met so many people and we can give back to this wonderful community where we spend our summers.” She likes the program so well, in fact, that she hopes to duplicate it in Chapel Hill, N.C.

Walker said the program has enough volunteers for this summer and, thanks to a purchasing relationship with the New Hampshire Food Bank, is in a healthy financial position. He’s already planning for Got Lunch!, year two. “Next year we think the program is really going to be a challenge because we expect the program will double,” Walker said. Noting that the program is not an off-chute of the Congregational Church, he said a goal for the coming year will be to “grow our committee structure” to include members that more broadly represent the community. With the expectation that many more families will sign up, he also expects funding for next year will be a daunting hurdle. Until then, though, he’s pleased to see the program at work. “It’s really been neat,” he said.

post offices along the route are being considered for closure in California and Washington, including the last stop before Canada: Stehekin, Wash. The wilderness community reachable only by boat, floatplane or on foot. Backpackers would have to carry many more pounds of food between stops, which would make the trip more difficult and less enjoyable, said Heather Tilert, a 28-year-old from New York who hiked the trail last year. The Appalachian Trail hikers typically walk or hitchhike into nearby towns for supplies every week or so, and many are on tight budgets. In some spots, discount stores provide the ramen noodles and peanut butter used to replace the thousands of calories hikers burn each day. But in others, stores are harder to find and hikers ship supplies in advance to post offices that will hold the packages for them. Also common is the use of “bounce boxes” filled with extra food, batteries or books, which hikers mail to themselves between the 121 post offices near the trail. At the Fontana Dam office, the last resupply stop before the Smokeys, employee Brenda Williams said it’s not unusual for her to give out 30 to 40 packages daily during peak hiking season. It’s the busiest time of year for the post office in the town of about 30 full-time residents. “Our post office is a little bitty thing with two teller windows,” she said. In Caratunk, hikers can pick up parcels at the post office less than half a mile from the trail. If that site closes, the nearest post office will be 7½ miles up the road in West Forks, but that one’s also slated for possible closure. The next-nearest is about 15 miles away. Hikers toting walking sticks and lugging packs stream in and out of the post office during the hiking season, said Liz Caruso, a Caratunk selectwoman. Last year, 374 packages were mailed to the post office for hikers. see POST OFFICES page 14

You have to win back-toback to earn a mandate Those who consider themselves constitutional conservatives should take care to consider not only the powers that the Constitution confers on the different branches of government and reserves to the states and the people, but also the schedule that the Constitution sets up for sharp changes and reversals of public policy. The entire House of Representatives is elected every two years. The voters in 2010, with unusual clarity, elected a House determined to reverse the Obama Democrats’ vast increase in the size and scope of government. But determination is not enough. Barack Obama, elected in 2008, remains in office, armed with a veto. The friendly mainstream media permit him to use euphemisms to insist on tax increases that were roundly rejected by the voters in 2010. And the Senate, two-thirds of which was elected in the Democratic years of 2006 and 2008, retains a Democratic majority that, though unable to pass its own budget, can frustrate House Republicans’ attempts to deliver on their more recent mandate. The lesson is that you have to win at least two elections in a row to make the kind of policy changes that the Obama Democrats made in 2009 and 2010 and that House Republicans want to make now. The good news for Republicans is that there has been a convergence of voting in congressional and presidential elections. Starting in the 1950s, accelerating in the ‘60s and ‘70s, and continuing in the ‘80s, many Americans split their tickets, often electing Republican presidents but electing Democratic House majorities for 40 years. In the middle 1990s, that changed. The Democratic percentage of the vote for president and for the House of Representatives have differed by no more than 1-percent starting in 1996. In addition, the percentages for the two parties in the popular vote for the House in the last three off-year elections have been almost exactly the same as the percentages for the parties in the vote for president two years later. In 1998, the popular vote for the House was 49-percent to 48-percent Republican. In 2000, the popular vote for president was 48-percent to 48-percent. In 2002, the popular vote for the House was 51-percent to 46-percent Republican. In 2004, the popular vote for pres-

ident was 51-percent to 48-percent Republican. In 2006, the popular vote for the House was 53-percent to 45-percent Democratic. In 2008, the popular vote for president was 53-percent to 46-percent Democratic. Obviously, this is not good news for Barack Obama, since the popular vote for the House in 2010 was 52-percent to 45-percent Republican. Translate those numbers into electoral votes, and you have something like a 331 to 207 Republican victory. Now it is possible, even in a period when the congressional and the presidential vote have converged, for a president to improve on his party’s off-year performance. Bill Clinton did so in 1996, running 5-percent ahead of his party’s House performance two years before, by sharply changing course on public policy. And it seems that in the negotiations on the debt limit, Obama is trying to depict himself as following a similar course. He has said he would support billions in spending cuts — though without providing any specifics. He has said that he would be willing to “look at” meanstesting Medicare — though it’s unclear this commitment amounts to anything. He has encouraged the pliant press to depict Republicans’ opposition to “revenues” — translated into English that means tax increases — as “intransigence.” But it’s Obama who has been intransigent about insisting on tax increases that voters endorsed tepidly at most in 2008 and that they clearly repudiated in 2010. Obama promised to fundamentally transform America, and he and his party have managed to increase the federal government’s share of gross domestic product from 21-percent to 25-percent — a huge policy change. They are striving now to keep it at that level permanently. Republicans want to reverse that enormous policy change, and many are ready to denounce any debt limit deal that leaves them short of that goal. Before doing so, they ought to consult the Constitution. To achieve the changes they want and that voters endorsed in 2010, they need to win again in 2012. The deal that gets them closer to that is what they ought to be seeking now.

Check with people of Minnesota before you embrace Pawlenty To the editor, Tim Pawlenty is the reason Minnesota is in horrible shape. When he came to office, he had a budget surplus. When Pawlenty left office the roads are a disgrace, and the state is in debt to the tune of several billion dollars. He keeps saying he hasn’t raised taxes; he just

adds “fees” to everything and thinks people can’t figure out that those are taxes by another name. The courts have determined that he misused his authority when he couldn’t work with the legislature and used line item veto to axe social welfare programs. see next page

LETTERS It’s an outrage the selectmen of Belmont allowed this to happen To the editor, In a recent newspaper article in The Daily Sun it was disclosed that Jon Pike, one of Belmont’s selectmen was awarded an $11,000 settlement not to file a court action against the Town of Belmont and will also receive health insurance until he reaches the age of 65, all at Belmont taxpayers’ expense. It is an outrage that the selectmen of our town have allowed this to happen and many very concerned citizens are taking steps to fight back. It should be obvious to us all that there is a serious management problem in the town hall and those problems are costing us a lot of money, and they are being covered-up at the taxpayers’ expense. We the concerned taxpayers are attaching a letter we have recently sent to the town so that you are all informed on what is happening. This letter is self explanatory and is the first step in the legal process. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. July 12, 2011 To the Board of Selectmen, Town of Bemont: This letter is in response to the letter I received from a lawyer named Laura Spector, replying to my initial e-mail sent to Selectman Ron Cormier on

July 5, 2011 about a newspaper article regarding Selectman Jon Pike and a settlement of $11,000. I was advised by this letter to obtain a copy of the General Release of All Claims and, along with that, was a copy of a Confidentiality Agreement between the town represented by Ron Cormier and signed by Jon Pike on June 10, 2011. This agreement requires the town to pay Jon Pike $11,000 to forgo a lawsuit against the town and to pay for his health insurance until he reaches the ages of 65. In order for all of this to happen there had to have been a number of meetings that were either private meetings or legal public and nonpublic sessions. In view of the secrecy of this action and as a concerned citizen I am requesting through RSA 91-A:3 and RSA 91-A:4 a review of all the actions taken by the board members regarding this matter. We the concerned citizens of Belmont are requesting a copy of the minutes of all meetings that were held on this matter, to include phone calls, faxes, e-mails, or any recording device. Please respond within five days. George Condodemetraky Jason D. McCarthy James D. Woodbury, Sr. Susan Condomenetraky Belmont

My drive-by assessment is the basement & 1st floor can be saved To the editor, Former Laconia Code Enforcement Officer Bill Stewart made a slanderous claim after only being on the job since March 14, 2011 that some contractors in Laconia have been building substandard houses. This was reported in The Laconia Daily Sun on June 11, 2011: “Stewart described the quality of finished homes in Laconia as substandard compared to other states like Arkansas and Mississippi where poor quality is expected. There is good work being done in Laconia, he hastened to add, but only a few contractors do it. Enforcing standards, he said, is necessary to improve quality.” Stewart also said he wanted an engineer or architect to, “apart from preparing the drawings, may also supervise the work on site by filing an affidavit that all codes will be met.” The code enforcement officer’s job is inspecting and enforcing the build-

ing codes. The Laconia City Council shouldn’t add another tax to the cost of building a new home in a already depressed market by having to pay an architect to do the code enforcement officer’s job. Former Code Enforcement Officer Stewart testified in court that a building owned by Brandi Baldi at The Weirs is structurally unsound and needs to be torn down. He made that determination without going into the building. My drive-by assessment is that the basement and first floor can be saved and built on. The city should be proactive in Baldi’s battle to rebuild, not adding to the cost by taking her to court. This would be a good job for the Belknap Economic Development Council to bring some needed jobs to Laconia. David Gammon Building Contractor Laconia

LETTERS Bribes put American manufacturing plants in other countries

Make sure these animals are protected. Welcome back big cats

To the editor, I want to tell you why I supported “Right-to-Work”, and why, in my opinion, every American should also support Right-to-Work. Back in the 1960s when I was the marketing supervisor for rubber-lined tanks at B. F. Goodrich, I handled the sales of rubber lined “pickling” tanks for two of the five steel mills being given away to countries overseas. One inevitable result of our using American tax dollars to give those steel mills to five different, overseas nations would be to put American steel worker out of work. Yet, put themselves out of work they did. At the time I could not figure out why the steel workers would support sending steel mills, at our expense, to other nations when one unavoidable result of using American tax dollars to build steel mills for other countries would be to put American steel workers out of work. Thousands of other kinds of manufacturing plants were provided for other nations, which is turn put many millions of other American workers out of work. Since those plants were then “owned” by the governments of those nations, the only thing such give-aways promoted, was socialism. In the 1970s I was the “S-4”, or supply officer for an Army Reserve Artillery Battalion. My being the supply officer means that I knew exactly how short we were of supplies. My battalion was supposed to have six 155 mm howitzers, and we had only one obsolescent 105 mm howitzer. During the 1960s and 70s, Congress awarded funds to fully equip the Army Reserve five different times. None of those funds ever ended up in the Army Reserve. Each of those five times, all of the funds were sent to other countries. A good deal of those American tax dollars were laundered through the World Bank, the various U.N. trade agreements, and other activities and agencies of

To the editor, It was a warm summer night in 2006 when I left my work at Lake Sunapee Country Club and began the trek home on Route 89 to Concord. It was around eleven o’clock, and there were almost no other cars out. Soon into my ride, I saw a brown shape crossing the road ahead. I rapidly slowed, for I had seen deer, coyotes, foxes and even a snapping turtle crossing the road on this stretch in my short amount of time commuting. Then, when I neared I noticed something queer about this deer. It had no head. Where it’s head should have been, there was nothing, and then I saw the eye-shine, low and to the road. The animals head was below its shoulders. As I came within about 50 feet, I braked pretty even harder and came to a virtual stop… I was looking at a mountain lion. It paused and looked right at me while

the United Nations. The sending of American tax dollars to other nations is a long-standing problem. A great deal of that kind of “laundering” of American tax dollars to other nations was attributed to Members of Congress who were elected to Congress by union support and backing. At a later time, the “deals” that President Clinton made, especially with China, were so obvious and so flagrant, that the Congress impeached President Clinton for accepting bribes. So the bribery information is there for anyone who wishes to review it. All one needs to do is to look through the Congressional Record for the year 1998 to see all the details that one needs to see. Bribes, (not Wal-Mart) put American steel mills in China. Bribes, (not WalMart) put thousands of other American manufacturing plants in nations overseas. According to one estimate, over the past 50 years, American tax dollars built about 42,000 manufacturing plants overseas, at a cost of 13-trillion American tax dollars and the loss of 29-million American manufacturing jobs. It is all “in the record”, all the details were published in one place or another. The job loss is still continuing, for example, In the past 10 years, manufacturing jobs in New Hampshire dropped from about 103,000 jobs in manufacturing down to about 65,000 jobs, and that loss of jobs killed about half of the tax base of the State of N.H. The U.S. Congress did impeach President Clinton, but by the time the bribery charges got to the Senate, President Clinton’s backers had managed to get the charges changed from an impeachable charge of bribery over to it being a bedroom farce, and the Senate did not convict. Yes, I support “Right-to-Work” and so should every American. Rep. Bob Kingsbury Laconia

Americans wake up from the dream to find nightmare that’s future To the editor, After watching President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner give speeches Monday night, it is no longer possible for me to remain soundly asleep for this. The prolific, often prophetic thinker George Carlin said, “It’s called the American dream because you have to be asleep to believe it.” On Tuesday, Americans woke up to a government that no longer can unify, even in times of a crisis. When listening to the now-distanced party leaders speak, it is difficult to believe they are talking about the same issue. It’s as if the government is a hightech fighter jet, with the debt being a missile that is locked onto the jet and the political actors in the two par-

ties are the pilots. As certain doom approaches, the pilots can’t agree on the whether to use flares or chaffs to stop the missile. Instead, they will let the debt blow the whole plane to pieces, rather than allow the other side to be right. While the explosion continues, Americans wake up from the dream, to the nightmare that is the future. After 30 years of relying on easy money from Wall Street’s David Copperfields, the nation is left with no industrial system to turn to for an export-capital gross domestic product solution. The result: a disappearing middle class — former owners of the dream. Christopher Burbank Moultonborough

on the shoulder of the road, then disappeared into the grass. The last thing I saw was its long tail wisp away, curling to and fro. I never reported my sighting, but it prompted me to research the heck out of New Hampshire sightings. Most were unreliable accounts or blurry photos, nothing convincing. Then, last fall, there was a Fish and Game official who went on record of running into one while on a hike. It was reasoned that perhaps a pet got loose and was a lone cat living in the wild. When a mountain lion was hit and killed in Connecticut, it was hard proof that these animals can not only roam freely into New England, but may also be doing pretty well here (the animal was a hundred and forty pounds and seemed in good health).

LETTERS Knowing the right thing to do & doing it are not the same thing To the editor, Elephants say that the president’s proposal is too ambitious given the tight schedule and the gulf between their positions. Why is it so hard to reach an understanding on why debt is not in the best interest of the American people? The substance of a deal is even more problematic. The elephants in the House say they will not accept any tax rises. Of course the donkeys want tax increases. The leaders of the donkey’s minority in the House say they will not accept cuts to the social safety net. The elephants want cuts to the social safety net. Given the likely level of elephant opposition to compromise, some donkey votes will probably be needed to get any deal through the House. The president, for his part, has ruled out a short-term fix. That after all would mess with the 2012 re-election campaign. He does not want the issue to come up again before next year’s elections. But he might be open to one lasting just a few days, if it helps to get a deal done. House elephants have decided to use some of the time remaining to play to the gallery. On July 19th they approved a bill known as “Cut, Cap and Balance”, which would hack government spending by $5.8-trillion over the next decade, which is way too low a target, in exchange for raising the debt ceiling by $2.4-trillion which would be enough to get the country through next year’s elections if we assume no additional wars break out and no new spending is passed and we actually have the self-discipline to actually limit our spend to that which is budgeted. Although the bill does little to specify where the ax should fall, it would entail cuts of over 10-percent to everything but defense according to the donkeys. The bill also limits federal spending to 20-percent of GDP from 2015. Just for reference spending is 24-percent of GDP today. Let’s see, we can’t cut spending today but we can agree that it would be a good idea to cut spending by 20-percent four years from now. That’s going to happen. You believe that … don’t you? It also requires Congress to approve an amendment to the Constitution that would, once ratified, require all future budgets to be balanced and bar any tax hikes unless approved by a two-thirds majority. The donkeys do not think much of the bill. They call it “Duck, Dodge and Dismantle”. Mr. Obama has vowed to veto it. He reasons it is likely toll on government-funded health care and pensions. He almost certainly won’t have to because the donkey-controlled Senate is unlikely to approve it. The House passed the bill by less than the two-thirds majority required to send a constitutional amendment to the states for ratification, suggesting that the scheme would eventually flounder in both chambers. The talk of the Senate is about a proposal from its “Gang of Six”. It seems three donkeys and three elephants who have been debating a big budgetary overhaul for months have a plan they may put forward. It would

cut deficits by about the magic $4-trillion. Three-quarters of the savings would come from spending cuts, and a quarter from increased revenue. The plan contemplates enacting an elaborate arsenal of procedural rules and automatic triggers to keep Congress on the straight and narrow. Now how well has that worked in the past? The plan doles out bitter medicine to both parties. Elephants would have to swallow cuts to military spending and higher revenues. To make the latter more palatable, the extra cash would come solely from eliminating tax loopholes, and would be accompanied by a lowering of income- and corporate-tax rates. Donkeys would have to stomach cuts to cherished schemes such as Medicare and Medicaid, which provide low-cost health care to the elderly and the poor respectively. Additionally the measure of inflation used to calculate annual increases in many benefits would be made stingier. But there is a sweetener regarding Social Security: any savings made from that program would go towards shoring up its parlous finances, rather than paying down the deficit. Why declining to pay down the debt with the monies saved makes sense in Washington is difficult to understand. The Gang of Six’s plan won an immediate endorsement from the lead donkey, who said it was “broadly consistent” with his own approach. Lamar Alexander, the number three in the Senate’s elephant hierarchy, has signed on, while Dick Durbin, the donkeys’ number two, is himself one of the six. But the elephants in the House have already rejected a similar proposal from the lead donkey on the grounds that the increased revenues were tantamount to tax increases, even if they come only from closing loopholes. Harry Reid, the leader of the donkey majority in the Senate, doubts that there is enough time to put such a complicated deal into legislative language and usher it through Congress by August 2nd. Mr. Durbin himself conceded, “It is not ready for prime time.” Mitch McConnell, the leader of the Senate elephants, is peddling a fallback plan. It would give the president the power to raise the debt ceiling three times between now and next year’s elections, by a total of $2.5 trillion. Congress would vote on each increase, but a two-thirds majority would be required to block them. No one seems to care that control of the nation’s finances is vested with the House. Constitutionally it may not be within their rights to abdicate in favor of dropping the responsibility on the executive branch. While the plan is clever, in that it would spare elephants from voting to raise the debt ceiling and indeed give them three opportunities to vote against it while sparing America a default. But it is not clear it would pass muster with the House elephants, who view it as a blatant abdication of responsibility that does not stipulate any deficit reduction at all. There is talk of attaching $1.5-trillion in spending cuts to improve the plan’s see next page

Pastor Bob is loving, caring man; I’m proud to call him my friend To the editor, I’m proud to be a member of the Center Harbor Christian Church. There has been a lot of negative writing about Pastor Bob and I’d like you all to know what he is really all about. He gives clothing to those who need it and food the the hungry (no one is ever turned away, no matter where they live). He gives people counseling at no cost to them. Pastor has paid for rent deposits for those who no place to live (and lets them stay the the church until they find lodging). He has been known to pay electric bills, phone bills, gas bills and even rent for those who

need it. He’s paid for mechanic work on cars that need it and even helped several people get cars. He’s a man of great courage and strength and he’s generous beyond measure. He was called to a house fire and when he got here the lady who lived in the house was standing outside with bare feet (in the winter) so he took off his shoes and put them on her feet. Pastor Bob is a loving , caring person and so is his wife, Barbara, and I’m proud to call the my friends. Donna Swain Laconia

Redistributive control economics doesn’t work; look at history To the editor, The politics of liberals is a ball and chain on the economic advancement of everyone; economic illiteracy is their nemesis. Does anyone remember Milton Friedman? Have any liberals heard of Adam Smith, the Austrian School, von Mises, Hayek, economic principles that create wealth, not dissipate it? Ideas that unshackled the human entrepreneurial spirit 200 years ago and propelled us from an agrarian society to outer space, to the Internet, to longer, healthier and more prosperous lives. Redistributive control economics does not work. Keynesian economics does not work. It did not work for

FDR, in spite of the liberal myth, and it won’t work for Obama. These statist plans are a quintessential model of Einstein’s definition of insanity: “doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results”. In spite of endless failures and unintended consequences, liberals persist in these Utopian schemes because they mesh perfectly with the puerile mind-set and simplistic thinking of the faithful. Do you sincerely want the best possible quality of life for your children and your grandchildren? Don’t vote for liberals. Robert E. Hood Center Harbor

Could we start operation to send out-of-date food to Africa? To the editor, I read the letter about how much food Americans throw away written by Derek Morrissette. It made me think. Yes, there is a lot of food wasted. I saw a movie about it recently, about how grocery stores throw food away every day and make it a crime for anyone to try to salvage it. I don’t know much about the famine in Africa going on now but I’ve heard a little about it. The letter writer suggested that we send them expired food. I know expired food is not dangerous. Mr. G’s Liquidation Center in Frank-

lin, which I shop at frequently, sells out of date food at very low prices. I wonder if it would be possible to start some kind of operation of acquiring out of date food to send to Africa. I know it sounds hopelessly unrealistic and undoable. But maybe it isn’t. I wonder if anyone else would be interested in looking into this. Maybe two or three interested people could find out what it would take to do this. If anyone thinks this is a good idea, I’d like to hear about it. Hillarie Goldstein Franklin

Each decade has it bad points but there was more good back then To the editor, Okay, I didn’t mean to say that everything was perfect in the old days, it wasn’t. The old days had their problems, too. I was just giving examples of how certain things were better: music, clothes, cars, movies, TV shows ,etc. There were only five channels to watch and there was some better stuff than the 100+ channels that you can get now. Cars got crappy fuel mileage but at least they weren’t all plastic like they are today. It seemed like people had more respect for each other, they worked harder and the only people who got on welfare were

people who were underemployed, sick or disabled. The bad things about the old days, and I agree with one of the people who wrote in response to my first letter, was that blacks and women were treated badly, cars got crappy gas mileage and had no seatbelts, there wasn’t the technology we have today to fight disease and so on. So, I guess each decade has it’s bad points,but it just seems like there was more good in the world then than today. Derek Morrissette Laconia

Pit bull probably scared burglar away from South End home LACONIA — A south end resident reported yesterday that someone tried to break into her home by trying to pry open the sliding glass door. The woman, who lives near the Mile Hill Road area where there have been reported nighttime burglaries of occupied home, said the incident occurred sometime between 3 and 5 p.m. Wednesday afternoon. “I had gone out with a friend for coffee,” she said. The woman pointed to where it appeared someone had tried to pry something into the upper portion of the right side of her sliding glass door. When that failed, she said it looked like the person

attempted to pry the lower part of the left side of her sliding glass door but their actions caused the safety glass to shatter. She also said her pit bull, who is usually sound asleep on the couch, probably scared away whoever it was. The woman said her dog was sitting by the glass door looking out over the porch when she returned home from her visit with her friend. “I thought that was unusual until I saw the broken slider,” she said. — Gail Ober

AWOL from page 2 obtained by The Associated Press the attacks ran against his beliefs and were “an act of aggression by a man and not by Islam.” Abdo was approved as a conscientious objector this year, but that status was put on hold after he was charged with possessing child pornography. He went absent without leave from Fort Campbell, Ky., during the July 4 weekend. On July 3, he tried to purchase a gun at a store near the Kentucky post, according to the company that owns the store. Abdo told an AP reporter a week later that he was concerned about his safety and had considered purchasing a gun for protection, but had not yet done so. Police in Killeen said their break in the case came from Guns Galore LLC — the same gun store where Maj. Nidal Hasan bought a pistol used in the 2009 attack. Store clerk Greg Ebert said the man arrived by taxi Tuesday and bought 6 pounds of smokeless gunpowder, three boxes of shotgun ammunition and a magazine for a semi-automatic pistol. Ebert said he called authorities because he and his co-workers “felt uncomfortable with his overall

demeanor and the fact he didn’t know what the hell he was buying.” According to an Army alert sent via email and obtained by The Associated Press, Killeen police learned from the taxi company that Abdo had been picked up from a local motel and had also visited an Army surplus store where he paid cash for a uniform bearing Fort Hood unit patches. Agents found firearms and “items that could be identified as bomb-making components, including gunpowder,” in Abdo’s motel room, FBI spokesman Erik Vasys said. The Army alert said Abdo “was in possession of a large quantity of ammunition, weapons and a bomb inside a backpack,” and upon questioning admitted planning an attack on Fort Hood. Officials have not offered details about a possible motive. Baldwin, the police chief, said Abdo “was taken down rather quickly without incident.” Vasys said the FBI would charge Abdo with possessing bomb-making components and he would be transferred from Killeen police into federal custody. Vasys said there was nothing to indicate Abdo was working with others.

from preceding page prospects, but critics are still denouncing the idea as “Cut, Run and Hide”. Mouthpieces on both sides still insist that when push comes to shove, everyone will stop posturing and do their duty. We will all have to see about that. Public opinion may help. Polls show a growing desire for both sides to compromise: 77-percent of respondents to one published this week, for example, thought the elephants were being too intransigent, while 58-percent felt the same about the head donkey. The business lobby, naturally, is particularly

alarmed by the prospect of a default. As the head of the Chamber of Commerce put it recently, “Congress needs to raise the debt ceiling and it must do so without delay.” The irony is that most members of Congress seem to agree with that proposition they just seem incapable of working out how, exactly, to do it. As with all things: knowing what to the right thing to do is and doing the right thing are not exactly the same. Vote early, vote often. Marc Abear Meredith

19 arrests for drinking or drugs at Wiz Khalifa concert GILFORD — Police reported 19 arrests for underaged drinking or drug posession at Wednesday night’s Wiz Khalifa concert at the U.S. Cellular Meadowbrook Pavilion. Those arrested reportedly came from as near by as Laconia, Meredith

and Franklin and from as far away as Massachusetts. Police also reported one instance of criminal mischief and one case of larceny. The arrests came between the hours of 7:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.

ISLAND from page one of road as well as the other infrastructure and there are currently 12 students from the island enrolled in the Gilford public schools, at a cost Aichinger calculates at $166,666 each. Property owners pay for security services and rubbish collection. Taxation of property on Governor’s Island, Aichinger insists, has reached “the breaking point.” Older waterfront properties are listed for sale at prices below their assessed value. High taxes have forced foreclosures and short sales. And property values have fallen. “Stick a fork in us,” Aichinger says, “we are done.” Secession and independence, Aichinger projects, would halve the property tax rate. “With the resulting tax rate being one of the lowest in the Lakes Region,” she writes, “we will see out island community rise up again and be a sought after place to live.” Aichinger proposes the town of Governor’s Island could pay tuition to send its children to school in neighboring municipalities — Gilford, Laconia, Alton or Meredith — or provide them with a stipend to attend a private school for some $265,000 a year. The town could contract with Belknap County, Gilford or Laconia for police patrols and fire protection and hire a private ambulance service, all for less than $60,000. She estimates the salary for a town clerk/tax collector, which is required by law, at $25,000 and allows $12,000 for administrative expenses. She budgets $50,000 for plowing and maintenance of the roads and a reserve fund of $2o0,000 for major reconstruction.

Altogether Aichinger calculates that the islanders could operate a town with an annual budget of about $610,000, which together with the county tax and statewide property tax, would amount to about $1.6-million, compared to $4.1-million. Conceding her estimate may be low, Aichinger said that it could be raised by $400,000 and still the annual aggregate tax burden would be halved. Aichinger said that she ran for a seat on the board of directors of the Governor’s Island Club on a secession platform, but lost. “I’m not really an insider,” she said. “I’m a fish out of water.” However, she succeeded in convening a tax committee, consisting of Bill Jacobson, David Haley, Susan Bradley, Don Minor and Kevin Attar, and last month pitched her plan to the board. Aichinger said she was met with “fascination and skepticism. Most think it is not feasible. It has sparked a lot of conversation at cocktail parties, but it is a very long shot.” Secession requires an act of the Legislature, which surely would be strongly opposed by Gilford. The last town formed by secession is Sugar Hill, which left Lisbon in 1962 for motives like those of Aichinger. Meanwhile, Aichinger said that she will continue to hold forth on the tax issue. “We’ve encouraged people to question their assessments and file for abatements,” she said, adding that so far 16 requests for abatements have been filed and six granted. “I know people laugh at me,” Aichinger continued. “But, I’m sticking to it. I’m trying to light a fire under the people on Governor’s Island.”

CLASS from page one population grew by four-percent but its annual budget rose by 59-percent and while school enrollment shrank the school district budget swelled by 69-percent. The major factor, she said, is the increase in the number of town employees, together with their generous salaries and benefits, which outstrip those of their counterparts in the private sector. Noting that the Legislature just reduced the state’s budget by 11-percent, she urged the selectmen to “cut your budget by even more than 11-percent” and return to the level of spending in 2000. Eager to mollify Aichinger and defend the board, Selectmen Gus Benavides said “I’m not going to disagree with you that 10 years ago spending was not where it should be” and asked “have you looked at the last three years? Our goal has been to slow growth,” he insisted and listed measures the board has taken to reduce and contain personnel costs. “We are making the tough decisions,” he said, recalling the controversy aroused by the board’s recommendation to withdraw funding for the Community Band. But, Aichinger persisted and after listening quietly for 20 minutes, Town Administrator Scott Dunn leaned toward his microphone and remarked,

“There are no town employees who can afford to own two homes on Governor’s Island.” “Mr. Dunn,” Aichinger shot back, “that is a very unfair comment.” She went on to remind the board that had the town initially agreed that she owned two lots, not one, one of the two homes she built would have been sold years ago. “I’m not talking about your property,” Dunn replied, then repeated what he said. “In fact, I can’t afford to own those homes,” Aichinger exclaimed. “That’s why they’re both on the market. Why are you insulting me?” Benavides sought to return to the issue of spending and taxes, stressing again that for the last three years the board had thrown a tight rein on the budget. Calling Aichinger by her first name, he told her “when you put yourself out you have to be prepared for people to come back. Town Administrator Dunn did not attack,” you he continued. He said an absolute truth. If Mr. Dunn had attacked you personally, I would have been the first one to address it.” On Thursday, Dunn was unrepentant. “What I find so bothersome about Mrs. Aichinger’s approach to governsee next page

DEBT from page one It wasn’t clear how long the delay might last, although a spokesman for Boehner said the vote was still expected to take place Thursday night. The White House quickly taunted Boehner’s Republicans. “Clock ticks towards August 2, House is naming post offices, while leaders twist arms for a pointless vote. No wonder people hate Washington,” White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer tweeted. Earlier, Boehner had exuded optimism. “Let’s pass this bill and end the crisis,” said the president’s principal Republican antagonist in a new and contentious era of divided government. “It raises the debt limit and cuts government spending by a larger amount.” President Barack Obama has threatened to veto from preceding page ment spending,” he said, “is her repeated insistence that town employees, who earn on average $20 per hour, should suffer by having their pay and benefits reduced for the benefit of some folks who want to maintain a multi-home lifestyle within certain affluent neighborhoods. But, other than that,” he concluded, “we’re in agreement on the need to control government spending and the municipal tax rate to the greatest extent possible.” — Michael Kitch

the measure, and in debate on the House floor, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida savaged it as a “Republican plan for default.” She said the GOP hoped to “hold our economy hostage while forcing an ideological agenda” on the country. Despite the sharp rhetoric, there were signs that gridlock might be giving way. “Around here you’ve got to have deadlock before you have breakthrough,” said Sen. Kent Conrad, D-N.D. “We’re at that stage now.” Wall Street suffered fresh losses as Congress struggled to break its long gridlock. The Dow Jones industrial average was down for a fifth straight session. The Treasury Department moved ahead with plans to hold its regular weekly auction of threemonth and six-month securities on Monday. Yet officials offered no information on what steps would be taken if Congress failed to raise the nation’s $14.3 trillion debt limit by the following day. Without signed legislation by Aug. 2, the Treasury will not have enough funds to pay all the nation’s bills. Administration officials have warned of potentially calamitous effects on the economy if that happens — a spike in interest rates, a plunge in stock markets and a tightening in the job market in a nation already struggling with unemployment over 9 percent. White House press secretary Jay Carney outlined White House compromise terms: “significant deficit reduction, a mechanism by which Congress would see next page

Request for Proposals Gilman Library Trustees Alton, NH 03809 The Trustees of the Gilman Library, have been charged with the responsibility of administering the Bob and Catherine Calvert Main Street Preservation Fund. The purpose of this fund is to preserve the original hard copies of Main Street, which are in the collection of the Gilman Library, in an electronic (digital) format and create an index of the issues maintained in electronic (digital) format, for future use by patrons of the library and other interested people. Main Street was a monthly newspaper published by Voice of Alton, Inc. from July, 1985 to October, 2005, with one final newspaper issued in the summer of 2006 . Newspapers ranged from 5 to 14 pages on 8 1 ⁄ 2 by 11 paper, and are col lat e and filed in individual sleeves in loose-leaf notebooks at the Gilman Library. Proposals will be accepted until September 1, 2011, and should include the following: Full name, address and qualifications of the applicant.

BURGLARY from page one anything because there was some evidence in my yard,” said the victim. The evidence, she later learned, was her pocketbook. Ironically, she said she had accidentally left her wallet in her car so the burglar got away with nothing. She said she thinks he or she got about $4 from her neighbor. While this appears to be the first time Sanbornton has been targeted, Laconia Police are reporting 16 burglaries over the past three weeks and most seem to share some similar characteristics. In addition, Laconia Police Chief Christopher Adams said Belmont Police reported at least two burglaries that appear to contain some of the elements of the Laconia ones. Hankard said yesterday he is asking residents to take the same precautions that other area police departments have suggested. He said to keep windows and doors, especially those on the ground floor, locked and to leave a light on both inside and, if possible, outside. Hankard said only cash was taken in Sanbornton’s recent burglaries and, similar to some of those in Laconia, a pocketbook or wallet was taken from the home, emptied of its contents, and only cash was taken.

“Whoever this is, is striking fast,” he said. Hankard and Adams have also suggested people should not leave pocketbooks, wallets or cash in plain sight where a potential burglary can look through a window and easily see the target he or she seeks. Hankard said he has been working closely with Laconia and Belmont Police and is asking residents to be especially vigilant about activity late at night. Echoing Adams, he said he would rather get a phone call and find an opossum rummaging through the garbage than not get a phone call and learn someone’s home was targeted by a burglar. He said he is shifting around some of his patrols and will be adding officers and patrols to the overnight hours. “We will be doing what we can with what we have,” Hankard said. Sanbornton Police can be reached at 286-4323, Laconia Police at 524-5252 and the Belmont Police at 267-8350. To leave an anonymous tip, contact the Greater Laconia Crime Line at 524-1717. Also, if a resident suspects someone may be in their house, police are suggesting, if possible, to use a land line to call 9-1-1 and, if they are afraid of being heard, leave it off the hook and police will automatically respond.

from preceding page take on the tough issues of tax reform and entitlement reform and a lifting of the debt ceiling beyond ... into 2013.” The last point loomed as the biggest obstacle. The House bill cuts spending by $917 billion over a decade, principally by holding down costs for hundreds of government programs ranging from the Park Service to the Agriculture Department and foreign aid. It also provides an immediate debt limit increase of $900 billion, which is less than half of the total needed to meet Obama’s insistence that there be no replay of the current crisis in the heat of the 2012 election campaigns. An additional $1.6 trillion in borrowing authority would be conditioned on passage of The endgame at hand, House Republicans struggled Thursday to pass legislation to prevent a looming government default while slicing nearly $1 trillion from federal spending. Senate Democrats pledged to scuttle the bill — if it got to them — in hopes of forcing a final compromise. As afternoon debate headed toward evening, GOP leaders ordered an unexplained halt on the measure and Speaker John Boehner summoned a string of recalcitrant rank-and-file Republicans to his office. Asked what he and Boehner had talked about, Rep. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said, “I think that’s rather obvious. .. There’s negotiations going on.” Another, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas., said he was unhappy Boehner had jettisoned a requirement

contained in earlier legislation for Congress to pass a constitutional balanced budget amendment and send it to the states for ratification. “Why are we negotiating with ourselves,” he asked rhetorically. It wasn’t clear how long the delay might last, although a spokesman for Boehner said the vote was still expected to take place later in the evening. The White House quickly taunted Boehner’s Republicans. “Clock ticks towards August 2, House is naming post offices, while leaders twist arms for a pointless vote. No wonder people hate Washington,” White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer tweeted. Earlier, Boehner had exuded optimism. “Let’s pass this bill and end the crisis,” said the president’s principal Republican antagonist in a new and contentious era of divided government. “It raises the debt limit and cuts government spending by a larger amount.” President Barack Obama has threatened to veto the measure, and in debate on the House floor, Rep.

Reform school in Foxborough? Patriots add Albert Haynesworth & Chad Ochocinco to their roster FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Randy Moss and Corey Dillon were malcontents when they joined the New England Patriots. Rodney Harrison arrived with a reputation as a dirty, washed-up player. All of them fit in very well with their new team. Now Albert Haynesworth and Chad Ochocinco are coming and “The Patriot Way” will be tested once again. After a season-long feud with Washington coach Mike Shanahan, the 335-pound Haynesworth was traded to the Patriots on Thursday for a fifth-round draft choice in 2013. Haynesworth will team with Vince Wilfork to give New England a formidable defensive line. Later Thursday, the Patriots obtained Ochocinco from Cincinnati and gave the wide receiver a new three-year contract. It was not known what the Bengals received. Each transaction was confirmed by a person familiar with the deals who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because none of the teams had announced the moves. The outspoken Ochocinco and reticent Patriots coach Bill Belichick have opposite public images. But they have developed a friendship, in part from interacting at Pro Bowl practices. “I like Chad,” Belichick said before last year’s season opener between the teams. “An odd couple, but in the end I think we have a lot of things in common.” Ochocinco returned the compliment: “He became a friend of mine. He has a lot of respect for me in my game and I have a lot of respect for him in everything he’s done as a coach.” Two defensive linemen who could be starting alongside Haynesworth in the 3-4 defense — the alignment that helped fuel Haynesworth’s discontent with Shanahan — think he’ll be adjust to the players’ unselfish approach. “You can see that Albert wasn’t really happy in his situation,” end Ty Warren said Thursday after the Patriots’ first practice of training camp, but “all you see is what goes on (from) the outside and sometimes that’s only half of the truth. So I don’t think it’s going to be a problem, with the structure of this locker room, the guys that’s in this locker room.” Wilfork, primarily a nose tackle, saw the most action at defensive end of his seven-year career last season. Playing next to Haynesworth, the 325-pounder could spend even more time on the outside. “It’s always team first. That’s the Patriot Way. If you can’t put the team first you won’t be here,” said Wilfork, a three-time Pro Bowler. Any new Patriots player with a checkered past, on or off the field, “will see how we do things around

here, point blank,” he added. “We had guys come through here with a rap sheet and (people) say, ‘he can’t be handled. This guy can’t do this,’ and you know what, it worked out fine for us. So I don’t think it will be a big problem.” Moss, eager to leave the Oakland Raiders, didn’t go all out in 2006 and was traded to the Patriots for the 2007 season. He caught 98 passes, including an NFL-record 23 touchdown receptions, that year and didn’t cause trouble until last season, when he was traded. Dillon, who complained about being stuck with a consistently bad Bengals team, was acquired in March 2004 for a second-round pick and was a major contributor that year to the Patriots’ championship. He rushed for a team-record 1,635 yards and ran for 75 yards and a touchdown in a 24-21 Super Bowl win over the Philadelphia Eagles. And Harrison became a hard-hitting leader, showing he was far from finished. “Every case is different,” Warren said. “All the guys that I’ve seen make that transition, from the Rodneys, just right on down the line. Everybody’s had a smooth transition.” Last year Haynesworth missed offseason workouts because he wanted a trade to avoid playing in Shanahan’s 3-4 defense. He didn’t practice until he passed the conditioning test on the 10th day of training camp. Then he was suspended for the final four games of the season for “conduct detrimental to the club.” He’s also had several legal troubles. He is scheduled for trial on Aug. 23 on a misdemeanor sexual abuse charge, stemming from an accusation that he fondled a waitress at a hotel bar in Washington. He has pleaded not guilty. “When we get on this field, regardless of what people say about you, it’s ‘Can you perform?’” Wilfork said. “It’s ‘Can you put it together?’” Haynesworth has talent. He had 8 1-2 sacks in 2008, his last season with Tennessee, which selected him with the 15th draft pick in 2002. With Haynesworth and Wilfork on the field at the same time, teams might have to assign four blockers to them. That would be a big advantage for the Patriots’ pass rush, which was mediocre last season. So what would it mean to play with him? “It’s huge. He’s got some freakish ability,” Warren said. “I’ve seen him on film and he’s the real deal.”

Downtown Laconia • 528-1828 • www.computermagik.com

BOSTON (AP) — With its spaghetti-like tangle of streets and legendarily pushy drivers, Boston hasn’t always been viewed as a haven for bicycle riders. The city is hoping to shed that image by launching the nation’s newest bicycle-sharing program with more than 600 two-wheelers available for short-term rental at 61 sidewalk vending stations across the city. Boston Mayor Thomas Menino said the program’s goal is to make the city more bicycle friendly and

reduce its reliance on cars. “The car is no longer king in Boston,” Menino said moments before dozens of bicycle riders took to the wide plaza in front of Boston City Hall to celebrate the official start of the program. Menino, who’s adopted bicycle riding in recent years, said he hopes the New Balance Hubway system — named after its principal corporate sponsee next page

MISSING from page 2 away, the fact she was had been using a computer before she disappeared and the close proximity of the Canadian border, he said.“The good news is that in these kinds of cases, which can be real scary, most kids come home safely,” he said. “So just because it’s been two or three days doesn’t mean that there’s no hope. There’s an array of scenarios under which she could be out there.” Across the border, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in the province of Quebec were alerted to the girl’s disappearance, but there had been no sightings as of late Thursday afternoon, said Sgt. John Sparkes, an RCMP investigator in Sherbrooke, Quebec. Authorities did not issue an Amber Alert for the girl because the case does not meet the state’s criteria. New Hampshire issues its version of an Amber Alert only when authorities believe someone 17 or younger has been abducted, when they believe the child is in danger and when authorities have specific information they’re asking the public to look for, said Jim Van Dongen, spokesman for the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management. “They have to have some specific information they’re asking the public to look out for, usually a description of a car, or a license plate number, or something tangible,” said Van Dongen, who isn’t involved in Celina’s case. “It just doesn’t say, ‘be on the lookout.’ It’s got to be something specific.” Celina’s cousin Constance McKearney and another young woman, Cassie Belanger, spent Thursday morning gathering bottled water, juice and dona-

tions from local businesses and delivering them to the school for the investigators. They filled a minivan and carted the contents into the room where the investigators were gathered. “We’re just trying to say thank you for everything and we just hope she comes home safe,” McKearney said. The specter of the girl’s disappearance has hung heavy over Stewartstown, a community of 800 residents with one blinking streetlight and a handful of stores. Shannon Towle, who owns Towle’s Mini-Mart on Route 3, said people want Celina home. “It’s really weighing on the town,” Towle said. “The more time that goes by the harder it is. People just want her back.” Debbie Whelan, who dialed 911 after Celina’s older sister Kayla went to her house looking for the missing girl Tuesday morning, said community residents continue to pray for her return even as unsettling thoughts enter their minds. Whelan, who has six girls, several of whom go to school with Celina, said the 11-year-old never would’ve run away because she was too timid. Because of that, Whelan and many others believe someone went to the home to take her away. “Is it someone from up here? Is it an Internet predator? We just don’t know,” said Whelan, who said people are now locking their doors. In neighboring Canaan, Vt., scores of people gathered Wednesday night for a candlelight vigil for Celina. “She was beautiful,” said family friend Rebecca Goodrum, of nearby Beecher Falls, Vt. “She was the light of everything.”

POST OFFICES from page 5 “They’re always sitting outside the post office,” Caruso said. “When you go into the post offices, the shelves are full of boxes for hikers.” The same holds at the post office in Glencliff, N.H., which is used by hundreds of hikers each year to receive food and heavier clothing as the seasons change from summer to autumn in the colder northern states, said William Reilly, the caretaker at the nearby Hikers Welcome Hostel. “The most important thing for them is this is the last post office before the White Mountains, and they need their cold-weather gear,” Reilly said. On Thursday in Caratunk, Madelyn Hoagland-

Hanson said hikers were signing a petition at a hostel in New Hampshire aimed at keeping the Glencliff post office open. “It’s a shame that the local post offices are closing,” said the Philadelphia resident who has adopted the nickname “Trail Mix” on her trek from Connecticut to Mount Katahdin. Thru-hiker Greg Brown, of Pleasantville, N.Y, said the towns along the trail in Maine are spaced far apart. “I don’t think there’s much in the way of a grocery store.

Red Sox can only manage series split with Royals BOSTON (AP) — When the ball left Carl Crawford’s bat, Jeff Francoeur thought it was going over the short wall in right field. And he was prepared to go into the stands after it. Francoeur turned his back to the plate and headed for the fence, only to turn around after the ball got caught in the breeze and make a basket catch that ended Boston’s final threat Thursday. “Good thing there’s no Green Monster in right field,” Francoeur said, “or we’d be talking about a 5-4 Red Sox win.” Instead, Joakim Soria retired Yamaico Navarro for the final out, and the Kansas City Royals left Boston with 4-3 victory over the Red Sox. Billy Butler homered for the third straight game and Luke Hochevar pitched seven strong innings to help the Royals, last in the AL Central, split the four-game series with the AL East-leading Red Sox. Hochevar (7-8) allowed two runs on six hits and a walk while matching his season high for strikeouts with six. He retired 14 of the last 16 batters he faced and gave up just one extra-base hit, a third inning double by Navarro. “He was dynamite,” manager Ned Yost said. “Just dynamite.” Hochevar left with a 4-2 lead, and Dustin Pedroia led off the eighth with a high home run over the Green Monster on a 3-2 pitch from Greg Holland. But Holland got Adrian Gonzalez, Kevin Youkilis and David Ortiz on groundouts to end the inning, and Soria came on to pitch the ninth. With one out, Drew Sutton lined a hit off Soria’s

glove for a single, then pinch-hitter Crawford hit a long fly ball to the warning track in right. “I thought it was gone,” Francoeur said. “That’s why I put my head down and just started running. ... I wasn’t worried about catching it. I was thinking about getting back to the wall.” Francoeur turned around and caught it in the middle of the warning track, and Soria struck out Navarro to earn his 19th save. “I was getting up to celebrate,” Red Sox manager Terry Francona said. “I thought he got plenty, then the wind knocked it down.” Josh Beckett (9-4) lost for the first time in a month, giving up four runs — three earned — on five hits and three walks while striking out eight. The Red Sox had won six of their last seven games to move to a seasonhigh three games ahead of the second-place New York Yankees in the AL East before Thursday’s loss. Boston took a 2-0 lead in the third when Jason Varitek singled, Navarro doubled and they both scored on a single by Jacoby Ellsbury. But the Royals went ahead in the fourth when Beckett gave up back-to-back walks to start the inning and Butler followed with his 10th homer of the season, to straightaway center field. After Francoeur reached on a two-base error, Beckett gave up Mike Moustakas’ RBI double to make it 4-2. Pedroia led off the eighth inning with a home run over the Green Monster to cut the lead to one run and extend his hitting streak to 25 games; he has reached base in 37 consecutive games.

from preceding page sor — will foster a stronger cycling culture in Boston while helping knit together the city’s neighborhoods. “The sense of togetherness in the cycling community is so strong,” he said. “I am so happy to be part of that community.” While the program is the first of its kind in Massachusetts, other cities across the nation have already launched bike sharing initiatives, including Washington, Denver, and Minneapolis. New York City is also planning to create a similar bike-sharing program. User fees and corporate sponsors will help pay for the program. Rentals will cost $5 a day or $85 for annual memberships. Already 700 individuals have signed up for annual memberships. The system uses “swipe card” technology that allows users to rent bikes from one station and return them at another across the city. Typically, there will be about 10 bikes available at each station. Local officials are planning to expand the program into the neighboring communities of Brookline, Cambridge and Somerville, with as many as 5,000 bikes eventually available for rent. The initiative isn’t being universally welcomed.

Critics say Boston’s narrow, winding streets are less than ideal for bicycles. They also complain that bicycle riders in the city routinely race through red lights and stop signs and are a menace to drivers and pedestrians alike. The city is responding by stationing more police at key intersections to ticket scofflaw bicycles who disobey the rules of the road and drivers who create dangerous situations for cyclists. The city is also launching an education safety program and providing free helmets through the Boston Public Health Commission. Menino said the city has already added 38 miles of bike lanes and hundreds of bike racks to accommodate riders. The turnaround is notable for a city that was once routinely ranked as one of the worst in the country for bicycle riders by Bicycling magazine. Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority General Manager Richard Davey said he hopes the program will help extend the reach of the subway and bus network by giving riders the option of hopping on a bike after they get off the public transportation system.

Keith and Lilo Hall, owners of Kramer & Hall Goldsmiths in Laconia, have acquired software allowing them to design custom jewelry and immediately show the resulting design to customers.

Kramer & Hall Goldsmiths in Laconia bring new 3D technology to custom jewelry design

LACONIA — Everywhere you look today, 3D technology is starting to radically change the way we live from how everyday products are designed and manufactured to how we experience major motion pictures. And now, the innovative new custom design system at Kramer & Hall Goldsmiths brings 3D technology to the ancient art of jewelry making. Part futuristic movie, part cool video game, the computer-aided method of making jewelry is becoming the hottest trend in custom jewelry. Working with the jewelry professionals at Kramer & Hall, you first select a starting point design from thousands of options. Then using the 3D design software, you have creative control to customize every detail of the jewelry from stone size, shape, and color to extensive design changes. Once you are satisfied, Kramer & Hall will precision build the jewelry just for you from the computer file. You then receive a totally unique, one-of-a-kind piece that you helped create.

Starting in August Granite State Physical Therapy welcomes Joshua Brooks, MPT to our new Gilford Office located at 369 Hounsell Ave, Gilford, NH across from Piche’s Ski & Sport Shop We Specialize in Orthopedics, Sports Medicine and Neurological Rehabilitation To make an appointment with Joshua please give our office a call at 603-695-6767

“We at Kramer & Hall are moving into the 21st century while still retaining our commitment to personal service and attention,” said Keith Hall. “While we still offer custom handmade pieces, this new design software is state of the art and will fill the gap between readymade items and our traditional one of a kind. Come in, we’re excited to show you what our new system will do.” This innovative new custom jewelry design system is only available at select jeweler stores across the country. Representing the most advanced and intuitive method for designing jewelry ever developed, the system has already become the hot new trend in custom jewelry. Shopping for jewelry will never be the same again when you can do more than just browse for jewelry, you can help create it at Kramer & Hall Goldsmiths. Hall said shoppers are welcome to stop in for a free, no-obligation demonstration in the historic railroad station, downtown Laconia. Store hours are, Tues. - Fri. 9:00-5:30, Sat. 9:00 – 4:00.

6th annual Squam Swim to benefit loons on August 5 MOULTONBOROUGH — A team of seven swimmers will take to the water at 6 a.m. on Thursday, August 5 in the sixth annual Squam Swim to benefit the Loon Preservation Committee’s work to reverse recent declines in the loon population on Squam Lake. The swim team will enter the water at Squam Channel in Holderness and swim seven miles to the Sandwich Town Beach. Swimmers will be Wendy Van de Poll, Rose de Mars, Jacob Jason, Mark Longly, Blair Newcomb, Sara Prouty and Rick Van de Poll. They will be accompanied by a boat, donated by the Squam Lakes Natural Science Center and captained by Dale Lary. Since 2005, Squam Lake has seen a dramatic decline in its number of loon pairs and an average of fewer than three loon chicks raised per year, not nearly enough to maintain its loon population. Research done by LPC has revealed several threats that could be con-

tributing to these declines, including increasing temperature trends, increased recreational use of Squam, and high levels of contaminants like flame retardants and stain repellents found in unhatched eggs collected from failed nests. Since it started in 2005 the Squam Swim has raised over $57,000 for Squam Lake loons. With the funds raised, LPC will continue and expand its Squam Lake Loon Initiative, an ongoing effort to increase monitoring, research, management and outreach to recover a healthy loon population on the lake. The initiative will also help identify more systemic problems that could be affecting other wildlife on Squam Lake, and inform other LPC initiatives including its Loon Recovery Plan. For more information on the Squam Lake Loon Initiative or to make a donation visit www.loon.org or call the Loon Preservation Committee at 476-5666.

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Dear Annie: I am a 43-year-old male and have been in a common-law relationship with “Carol” for the past six years. I’ve never been married, but I proposed to Carol. We have a daughter together. I also have a teenager from a previous relationship, and Carol can’t stand her. Carol has two boys from a previous marriage. She never disclosed any details, but I found out she cheated on her ex. I work seven-day shifts, so I’m home only two weeks every month. Last fall, I found out Carol was pregnant by a man she’d been seeing for six months. I was devastated that she would betray my trust like that. She also contracted an STD from the guy, which she passed along to me. I supported her during her pregnancy, but she ultimately miscarried. I have trouble trusting her when I’m at work, and I constantly phone her to see what she’s doing. Now she’s accusing me of spying on her. Should I stay in this relationship, or should I just go my own way? -- Lost Dear Lost: It sounds like it’s time to leave. You are indeed spying on Carol because you don’t trust her, and you have good reason. She doesn’t seem to be showing any remorse for her affair or making any effort to regain your trust. Since you have a child together, please try marriage counseling first. Otherwise, it is time to see a lawyer about custody and visitation with your daughter. Dear Annie: I am a 47-year-old woman who is considering ending two friendships I’ve had for 20 years. The three of us have gone through a lot together, including a time of “sowing our oats” after divorces when we were younger. Since then, I have entered recovery for alcoholism and am happily remarried. My friends also remarried, but the two of them have not stopped sowing their wild oats. Our time together often revolves around their drama, in-

cluding their latest flings and flirtations. I have told them I don’t condone this behavior. I now have a greater respect for marriage and commitment. I feel these friends have not grown up, and I find it difficult to be around them. I recently arranged to get together for support after a personal loss. One of the women didn’t bother to show up or even call. The other spent the entire dinner talking about her latest affair. I’ve had enough, but I am torn due to our long history together. I am now in a place where honesty means everything to my sobriety. And I worry about making new friendships that are as binding. No one else will share the memories and history we have. But I don’t see what they are contributing to the friendship. Should I stay through thick and thin? Do I need to tell them I am severing ties, or can I simply distance myself and hope they get the point? -- Confused in Illinois Dear Confused: People change, and friendships ebb and flow. This is normal. You have a few choices: You can end the friendships, telling them you find it too difficult to hear their tales of infidelity. You can begin avoiding them, talking to them less often and seeing them rarely, letting the friendships fade over time. Or, you can keep in touch from a distance, hoping they will eventually grow up, too, but not seeing so much of them that it affects your sobriety or your patience. Dear Annie: You’ve printed a lot of letters from lonely widows. I’m an 84- year-old widow who also does not like to be home alone. So, for the past 20 years, I have been volunteering full time at a hospital. I go five days a week and have accumulated 34,000 hours. This keeps me going. I am entertained, don’t have too much time to be bored and help others, as well. -- F.E.

Pooch Café LOLA

By Holiday Mathis friends invite you to an event, go out of your way to attend. Consider the Scandinavian proverb: Go often to the house of thy friend; for weeds soon choke up the unused path. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The ones who have no idea how to help you will be, nonetheless, full of advice. If you weren’t so polite, you would find the situation laughable. Find out who the real experts are, and make appointments. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You respect law and order, though you also see how power can corrupt people. So you won’t follow orders until you’ve considered the source and seen the reason and purpose in the direction. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A problem that gets everyone to unify efforts and work together for a solution is a good problem to have. You will communicate what needs to be accomplished, and people will pull together. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll cultivate a deeper knowledge of your reality and work on many levels of consciousness at once. You progress quickly along in a project because of your multidimensionality. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 29). Your domestic scene improves because of behind-the-scenes activity. A loved one joins your quest for expansion, and in August, this starts with growing your spiritual and cultural awareness. You’ll be the initiator of new business in September. A large sum comes to you as a result of your advertising campaign. Aquarius and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 31, 47, 33 and 1.

by Darby Conley

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You value openness and friendliness, and you do not suspect people who try to get to know you better of having ulterior motives. And yet, it wouldn’t hurt to be slightly more on guard today. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You are deeply passionate about topics that also happen to interest a few of your closest friends. It’s nice to have something to connect you so completely. And for those who don’t “get it,” you’ll find other things to talk about. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Like a child who personalizes the world by naming his or her toys, you’ll add much-needed character and color to your surroundings. The others will be grateful for your contribution. CANCER (June 22-July 22). It will bring you pleasure to surprise those who know you well. It will be a living reminder to them that they will never be able to fully sum you up, so they had better not try. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). In time, you will achieve your objective. You know this, and so you don’t bother to push things along or stress about them unnecessarily. You have the patience of an immortal being. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll try to cheer someone else up and will wind up cheering up not only that person but three other people, too -- one of the people being, of course, you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Create back up systems for yourself. It’s not because you will need them, but because the exercise helps you realize how much you’ve accomplished, and it’s worth it to you. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).

Page 22 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Friday, July 29, 2011

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Friday, July 29, the 210th day of 2011. There are 155 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 29, 1981, Britain’s Prince Charles married Lady Diana Spencer at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. (However, the couple divorced in 1996.) On this date: In 1588, the English attacked the Spanish Armada in the Battle of Gravelines, resulting in an English victory. In 1890, artist Vincent van Gogh, 37, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in Auverssur-Oise, France. In 1914, transcontinental telephone service in the U.S. began with the first test phone conversation between New York and San Francisco. In 1948, Britain’s King George VI opened the Olympic Games in London. In 1957, the International Atomic Energy Agency was established. Jack Paar made his debut as host of NBC’s “Tonight Show.” In 1958, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the National Aeronautics and Space Act, creating NASA. In 1967, an accidental rocket launch aboard the supercarrier USS Forrestal in the Gulf of Tonkin resulted in a fire and explosions that killed 134 servicemen. In 1975, President Gerald R. Ford became the first U.S. president to visit the site of the Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz in Poland. In 1985, the space shuttle Challenger began an 8-day mission that got off to a shaky start the spacecraft achieved a safe orbit even though one of its main engines shut down prematurely after lift-off. One year ago: Army Spc. Bradley Manning was flown from a detention facility in Kuwait to the Marine Corps brig in Quantico, Va., to await trial on charges of giving military secrets to WikiLeaks. Today’s Birthdays: Comedian “Professor” Irwin Corey is 97. Actor Robert Horton is 87. Former Sen. Nancy Kassebaum-Baker is 79. Actor Robert Fuller is 77. Former Sen. Elizabeth H. Dole is 75. Actor David Warner is 70. Rock musician Neal Doughty (REO Speedwagon) is 65. Actor Mike Starr is 61. Documentary maker Ken Burns is 58. Style guru Tim Gunn is 58. Rock singer-musician Geddy Lee (Rush) is 58. Rock singer Patti Scialfa (Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band) is 58. Actress Alexandra Paul is 48. Country singer Martina McBride is 45. Rock musician Chris Gorman is 44. Actor Rodney Allen Rippy is 43. Actor Tim Omundson is 42. Actor Wil wheaton is 39. Rhythm-andblues singer Wanya Morris (Boyz II Men) is 38. Country singer-songwriter James Otto is 38. Actor Stephen Dorff is 38. Actor Josh Radnor is 37. Hip-hop DJ/music producer Danger Mouse is 34. Actress Rachel Miner is 31. Actress Allison Mack is 29.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Joe Pesci claims the makers of a biopic on the Gotti family have made him an offer he can refuse — a lesser part in the movie and a $2 million salary cut. The actor sued Fiore Films on Wednesday, seeking the $3 million he said he was promised to play the role of a childhood friend and enforcer of crime boss John Gotti Sr. Pesci claims the company used his name and likeness to promote the movie and attract investors, but now doesn’t want to honor its original offer to him. He has been offered a lesser role for a $1

million payday, the lawsuit stated. Fiore CEO Marc Fiore rejected the claims, saying he received correspondence months ago from the actor’s representatives telling him Pesci was pulling out of the project until the original director, who left the project, was replaced. “Before we had a deal, Mr. Pesci walked away,” Fiore said. Pesci’s attorney Brandon Tesser called Fiore’s statement false, saying no one informed Pesci of a reduced role until recently. The actor’s lawsuit stated Pesci gained 30 pounds to play the role of a trusted Gotti Sr. adviser, Angelo Ruggiero.
